I am an experienced entrepreneur, engineer, and marketer with experience in challenging business environments in emerging markets.
I graduated summa cum laude from Duke University in 2012 with a double major in Mechanical Engineering and Economics. I was one of the first members of the National Academies of Engineering’s premier Grand Challenges Scholars Program, and I performed extensive lab and field research into water access issues in the developing world.
When I graduated from Duke, I started working as a Marketing and Business Analyst at Yext, where I helped grow the company from a small one-office technology company into a large public corporation. Throughout my time at Yext, I became an expert in direct marketing and also gained experience in affiliate marketing network development, financial planning, contract negotiation, front-end development, sales team performance analysis, and marketing operations. My holistic experience taught me how to integrate different parts of a growing company when resources are scarce and time is tight.
After Yext, I started a water engineering and sustainability consultancy, Aswanet, in Kigali, Rwanda. Aswanet is the first East African representative of the Inogen Environmental Alliance and has worked with governments, nonprofits, and private clients in the hospitality, agriculture, education, and real estate industries. My work in Africa has brought me to some of the most challenging business environments in the world, including the Eastern Congo and South Sudan, and provided me extensive insight into the on-the-ground challenges of doing business in the developing world.
I’m also working as an independent consultant specializing in partnership development and stakeholder alignment in complex situations.
I currently live in the San Francisco Bay Area in the United States.
